Viet Nam- Linking Conservation and Development

This video looks at a successful initiative in the Lao Cai province where public-private partnerships are being piloted between provincial governments, ethnic minority communities and businesses selling traditional medicine that are managed and harvested with respect to traditional knowledge and practices. It is about how REDD+ can not only conserve the environment, but assist with rural development. A very colourful, visual story that is character-driven and touches on gender and indigenous communities.
